our guilt;Thou seest not what thou mayst, but what thou wilt:The hand that formd us is enforcd to beA screen set up betwixt thy work and thee:Look, look upon that hand, and thou shalt spyAn open wound, a thoroughfare for thine eye;Or if that wound be closd, that passage beDenyd between thy gracious eye and me,Yet view the scar; that scar will countermandThy wrath: O read my fortune in thy hand. 148 E3IBJ,EMS.

Poor soul, what ailst thou? Soul. O Iburp, I fry,I cannot rest, I know not where to fly,To find some ease; I turn my blubberd faceFrom man to man; I roll from place to placeT avoid my tortures, to obtain relief.But still am doggd and haunted with my grief:My midnight tonnents call the sluggish light.And, when the mornings come, they woo the night.
